Valentine's Day Gradient & Hearts

Hello all! Valentine's Day is coming and I've been enjoying seeing everyone's themed manis lately. Today I have my first one for the month that I actually did in December. I started my gradient for a New Year's Eve mani and decided it was suited better for this occasion. I did the gradient with China Glaze Spring in My Step, China Glaze Petal to the Metal, China Glaze Strike a Rose, and Barry M Passion Fruit. I stamped with MoYou London Festive 20 in Mundo de Unas Black. My sister got me the Barry M polish on her trip to Scotland recently so I'm glad I found it a mani-home and finally have a Barry M polish in my collection.

Bundle Monster Creative Art Polish--Review

Well hello Saturday! Today I'll be reviewing Bundle Monster Creative Art Polishes that are made for stamping. I received set 4--six metal foil finish polishes.

I stamped BM Villian over gel and top coated with regular polish. Once I added topcoat, Villian bled. I would imagine if I stamped over regular polish, it would have bled even more. This is the same thing that happens when stamping with Kleancolor polish.

I stamped using BM Chaos. My Christmas tree image came out with fuzzy edges.

Here's my stamper after using Villian and Chaos--stained.

It was difficult to pick up a whole image. This looks like when a stamper needs to be primed and it happened with most of my attempts. 

Still not a perfect image, but this was one of my better attempts at picking up the polish.

Here is the same image and stamper with a Mundo de Unas polish after one attempt.

My final thoughts: I really wanted to like these polishes since the set has great colors and I love having a variety of stamping polish, but I will probably not be using these again. The formula is thin for a stamping polish, bled, stained my stamper badly, and was difficult to pick up. You can purchase this set here for $21.99.
